Inland Review
Also A Business . .
T HE RECENT announcement that
the Inland Review will not be
published until enough subscriptions have been
received to make the effort financially possible
is indeed disheartening. The announced purpose
of the magazine is highly commendable and
deserves only the greatest support. According to
the editor, the success of the venture depends
upon the number of persons who evince enough
interest in seeing such a periodical established
at Michigan to contribute one dollar for its sup-
port. It seems scarcely plausible that there are
not enough students and faculty members at the
University to insure the reality of the magazine.
In the best of faith, therefore, we call the
attention of the Inland Review to the fact that
any magazine, whether it is an anthology of
poetry or a trade journal, is in part a business
venture and must be treated as such. If this
journal is to make its appearance, and it must
do so at a near date if it is to have more than
one issue this year, the editor has no other alter-
native than to actually solicit subscriptions on
the campus.
It is not difficult to see that such an under-
taking is bound to be difficult for one person to
handle. Maybe the editor should select a group
of persons, either student or faculty or both, who
are sincerely interested in the magazine-cer-
tainly they are available-to aid him in this work.

There can be little doubt that, by introducing
this business plan, enough subscriptions would
be gathered to provide for prompt publication of
the first issue. That enough subscriptions have
not been received by mail is certainly no true
indication that the requisite amount could not
be raised if the campus were properly canvassed,
Enough praise cannot be given the editor for
attempting to 1ll an important University need,
But to make for the success of this project, every
possible effort should assuredly be expended.
Of
Immortality.
A CATHOLIC, a Jew, three Protes-
tants, and a professional Philoso-
pher aregoing to tell us, via the columns of this
paper, what they believe about Immortality. It
will be intensely interesting to see what these
men, all of whom have given a great deal of
thought to this subiect. aewillinLo n cv hnnt it

to be written in our own language. Thus they
will be doubly stimulating, and together are to be
anticipated with keen pleasure.
Repeal It Twice
'If Necessary. . .
G OVERNOR COMSTOCK'S veto of
the proposed charter amendment
which would repeal the East of Division beer
ban came as quite a shock to many persons who
had not considered such a possibility, but it is
not surprising when one considers that it is not
inconsistent with the stand that the state ad-
ministration has taken all along.
We have believed from the beginning that At-
torney-General O'Brien was correct in his opinion
that the state liquor act had already repealed
the charter amendment. The state act states
definitely that all local acts conflicting with it
are repealed. It also very definitely vests the
sole police power over the liquor traffic to the
state liquor control commission. We believe that
the coming election is unnecessary from this point
of view.
On the other hand, the coming election will
give the people a chance to state their wishes in
the matter. Even if the election proves illegal,
that one thing will have been accomplished. It
will at least be interesting to have a competent
referendum. We believe that the proposed char-
ter amendment will be passed by an overwhelming
majority and the issue will be settled once for
all. Whether the beer ban has been repealed
once or twice will not mean anything.
The Theatre
LOVE VERSUS AMBITION:
"ELIZABETH THE QUEEN"
By JOHN W. PRITCHARD
"ELIZABETH THE QUEEN" does not exactly
scintillate; yet it is brilliant. In places it
becomes almost fiery; always it is sympathetic
in its treatment both of the old queen who is in
love with the youthful Essex but cannot allow
her love to interfere with statecraft, and of the
torrid young Essex who passionately (and para-
doxically) loves this old woman, but places above
his love the ardor of his ambition. Originally
done by Fontanne and Lunt, this Maxwell Ander-
son play is by far the most important of Play
Production's play productions so far this sea-
son. It will be presented tomorrow, Thursday,
Friday, and Saturday nights at the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre.
Mr. Anderson has succeeded rarely in catching
the Elizabethan spirit. The long word-plays, which
form so delightful a part of Shakespearian com-
edy, are prominent here. There is also a satis-
factory portion of court intrigue, with dashing
Raleigh and shrewd Cecil pitted against the tur-
bulent Essex. A fine piece of suspense machinery,
which is at the same time entertaining, is the
introduction of Burbage and others of the origi-
nal Shakespearian crew to play a Falstaff scene,
while Elizabeth paces nervously, waiting for Es-
sex (who lies in the Tower awaiting death) to
send her some word which will result in his par-1
don.
According to reports frQm Play Production, the
set for the drama is filled with the massively
simple Tudor atmosphere. Before the almost stern
scenic background the characters, colorful in their
authentic Elizabethan costuming, stand out in
bright pleasaunce. Immense care has been taken
in the production. It has been noticeable in the{
past that campus dramatic groups are at their
best when the vehicle is worthy: custom, at least,
would forecast a fine presentation.

"DAVID HARUM
David Harum.......Will Rogers
Ann ............ Evelyn Venable
Polly ............ Louise Dresser
John... . .........Kent Taylor
As a small town bachelor banker, who is above
all else 4 lovable old sentimentalist except when

he is concerned with horse trading, Will Rogers
gives us his latest characterization. While it is
typically Will Rogers, it is real enough to be con-
sidered uniquely worth while in its own right as
a good piece of acting. It definitely surpasses
his past performances not only because of his
efforts, but because of the superiority of the rest
of the picture.
"David Harum" is excellently planned, and
intelligently executed. The chief plot, which is
supported by several delightfully interwoven sub-
plots, is concerned with the Gay Nineties romance
of two New Yorkers, one a wealthy young girl
who spends her summers in the little town of
Homewood, N. Y., and the other a youth who has
been jilted by his fiancee because he lost all his
money in the panic of '93. David Harum is the
town's banker, and he has been the mentor of
the girl ever since she began to come to Home-
wood. When she falls in love with the youth that
David has hired to be his bookeeper and general
handy man, David spends a great deal of his
time and interest in making a match between
the two.
"David Harum" is filled with high spots. Some
of the most noteworthy are the series of well
varied, clever horse trading scenes, the unusual
insight shown in depicting the homely small town
life of the nineties, the excellent intermingling
of the different relations that David Harum has
with the other characters, the freshness of Evelyn
Venable's acting, the presence of the ever-lacka-
daisical Stepin Fetchit, the horse race which
furnishes the climax, the good direction, and
the subtle lightness of the picture's general
atmosphere.
There is one element present in "David Harum"
which snmewhat weakens it That is the connomic

REGENTS' SALARIES, FACULTY CUTS,
CLOSED LIBRARIES
In an article entitled "Keep Libraries Open Sun-
days," in The Michigan Daily of March 4, is the
following statement: "The State cut the Univer-
sity appropriation and the University authorities,
forced to reduce expenditures to the- bone; found
that it would be impossible to continue the Sun-
day library. The fault for the library's closing
hours, in other words, rests with the State Legis-
lature."
With the decrease in the tax money provided
by the State of Michigan, the State Legislature
was forced to reduce appropriations on every
hand, the State University as well as other insti-
tutions was given a decreased allotment, and I
understand they sent an accompanying resolution
asking that none of the personnel be dropped,
but each be given a reduction. The cut for the
library was 23 per cent (the largest I am told),
and "the library was forced to drop 20 full-time
members." Thus were the wishes of the legisla-
tures carried out. Many investments have been
wiped out entirely, and wouldn't these investors
be most happy to accept a mere 25 per cent cut?
When the necessity for curtailment of U. S. ex-
penses came, the then President of the United
States set the example by taking his 25 per cent
cut, and I understand the same excellent example
was set in our own institution. If the members
of the Board of Regents, each drawing $6,00,*
did likewise, it has been kept a dark secret. Fair-
ness would seem to dictate that cuts be made
where they can best be borne - among those
above the living wage class; and yet I understand
that many of the lower paid assistant professors
were dropped entirely, and the information as to
how many of the higher paid members of the
staff took their 25 per cent cuts has not yet been
-made public. This information woull be of
interest to the taxpayers of the State, who, no
doubt, will find it difficult to understand why the
library hours must be curtailed to the incon-
venience of the student body for the lack of $375
unless the students themselves contribute the
amount. -Former Student.

A Washington
BYSTANDER
BY KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON-The Roosevelt technique for
dealing with congress came to its severest
test as the first year of his presidency closed.
Faced by a house drive to pay off the soldier
bonus now and an overwhelming senate vote to
cut deeply into ordinary budget "economy"
savings by restoration of veterans' benefits and
federal pay slashes, the President seemed headed
toward his first real clash with congress. Open
threats of veto failed to stem the election-year
trend in either house.
*
THERE are certain factors in the situation
hinting at an ultimate compromise which
might avoid use of the veto. It is notable that
once a test vote was had in the senate on the
coalition plan which downed the administration
compromise on veterans' benefits, no further
administration effort was made to prevent loading
the bill.
The only other vote of record taken was on
the Long proposal to append the bonus payment,
and Senator Long himself called for the show-
down on that. It was beaten four to one but
that is no true estimate of the senate's attitude.
Ardent bonus payment champions viewed the
Long amendment as calculated to destroy the
bill. They spoke and voted against it.
%f r %*

N THE house, some signers of the discharge
petition intend to about-face and vote against
taking up the bill. If the bonus bill does come
to a vote, present estimates give it a majority
of 20 to 30 votes, nowhere near enough to beat
a veto.
Administration leaders in the house are now
determined to force that vote. That will put it
up to the senate with all its currency inflation
implications. The theory is that republican old
guardsmen who helped shape the senate revolt
on economy bill cuts in veterans' benefits will
find themselves, in turn, on the spot.
Collegiate Observer
By BUD BERNARD
The Kentucky Cardinal reports that a psycho-
logical examination conducted at Rockford Wom-
en's College resulted in the classification of "un-
popularity" as the greatest fear among the first
year students. The runner-up among the fears
was that of suspicious men. From one end of
the swing to the other it seems to us. Our advice
to the girls is, overcome the second-place fear
and the first will automatically vanish.
A Harvard man has invented an aid to
smell, which seems unnecessary: Almost ev-
erything smells to a Harvard man as it is.
